40 Creative Postage Stamps for Your Inspiration

Did you know that a person who collects stamps is called a ‘philatelist’? The first pre-paid postage stamp was issued in 1840. Since then, people all over the world have collected stamps, even presidents, royalty, and heads of state. They say that the largest collection of stamps is held by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

The main purpose of a stamp is to prove the payment of postage. Every country or region in the world has its own stamp design and specifications. Usually, stamps have some graphic design on them so that their location is easily recognizable. From textures to flat design, stamps are a great canvas for illustration work.

Designers worldwide use stamp to celebrate famous landmarks, destinations, sports, holidays, and put their own spin into the design. In this showcase, we have picked 40 creative postage stamps for your very own collection:
